Three prostitutes cater to all the special needs of their customers. One of them also tries to help out an unlucky friend who is in love but unable to perform in bed. This raunchy comedy boasts remarkably strong female characters. Even better, it’s not afraid to blend its frivolous antics with melancholy scenes of utterly poetic beauty.
